    My grandmother gave me some more of her father's pipes. He passed away in 1991, so these pipes are all at least 20 some years old and most are a lot older than that.

    Medico Ventilator: I don't know why he put the tape on it. Maybe to improve the draw.

    If memory is right, the Medico Vent has 4 sets of holes on the carb. He probably taped over 2 sets to get the correct draw for himself. Wonderful set! Clean them up and enjoy, my friend!

    I have my uncle's white briar Kaywoodie. Still got his last dottle in it. Sits in its own rack untouched. Great memories and sentiments! Congrats!
